Unbroken.LaunchBox.Plugins Namespaces

This documentation contains everything you need to develop plugins for LaunchBox and Big Box using any .NET language, such as C# or Visual Basic.

To get started, simply create a new Class Library project in Visual Studio, and then add a reference to Unbroken.LaunchBox.Plugins.dll which is located in the LaunchBox\Metadata folder.

Next, open the Unbroken.LaunchBox.Plugins namespace and pick out the plugin Interface that best matches what you're trying to achieve. Create a class that inherits from that interface, build your DLL, put it in the LaunchBox\Plugins folder (or the subsequent Plugins folder inside of a Big Box theme), and test it out!

The PluginHelper static class can be used to get access to LaunchBox data from within any plugin.
